Travel around the world: see and experience these beautiful beaches.

Looking for a place to hang out? Well, I guess, beaches are one of the best places in the world to spend summer vacation. So, join me and let’s tour the world and discover the best and most beautiful beaches. Let us feel altogether the breeze, let our eyes feast with its panoramic view and enjoy its cool waters.

1. Cox’s Bazar: Bangladesh

One of the best beaches in the world for beach lovers to visit is Cox’s Bazar. Cox’s Bazar boasts its wide and unbroken 125 km sandy sea beach with a gentle slop which she claimed to be the world’s longest natural sandy sea beach. Since the rise and fall of its tide is not great, it is an ideal place for sea bathing.

This famous beach is located 150 km south of Chittagong. It is also known by the name “Panowa”, literally “yellow flower”. It was also known then as “Palongkee”. The modern Cox’s Bazar derives its name from Captain Cox, an army officer who served in British India.

Cox’s Bazar is currently ranked number one on the list of the New 7 Wonders of the World.

2. Big Sur Beach: California, USA

California is the most populous state of the US. It’s almost certain that you won’t enjoy your stay on a beach if the place is too crowded. Big Sur, which is a part of California, is one of the thinly populated regions on the state making it one of the most ideal places for beach lovers to hang around.

Here the Santa Lucia Mountains rise abruptly from the Pacific Ocean. The terrain offers spectacular views, making Big Sur a popular tourist destination. The highest coastal mountain at Big Sur is the Cone Peak, ascending nearly a mile above sea level, only three miles from the ocean.

3. Pink Sand Beach (Harbor Island): Bahamas

Another interesting beach worth visiting is Pink Sand Beach. A beach is usually popular because of the color of its sand, and white sand beaches are the most popular. Pink Sand Beach which is located in Harbor Island, Bahamas, is unique because of its pink sand.

This beach was named its beautiful pink sandy beach. The resort is an 18 acre hideaway of luxury and natural beauty. The beach is more than 3 miles long with 50 – 100 feet wide. Pink Sand beach is considered one of the best beaches in the Bahamas.

4. Paracas Beach: Peru

One country worth visiting is Peru because it offers lots of scenic views. One of which is the Paracas Beach. On the beach, you’ll have a chance to encounter pelicans who roam along the beach.

Paracas Beach belongs to the desert peninsula Paracas on the south coast of Peru. Most of the Peninsula is part of the Paracas National Reservation.

5. Boracay Beach: Philippines

You will surely enjoy your stay on this island paradise. Boracay Beach is one of the country’s most popular tourist destinations. It is approximately 300 km south of Manila.

Boracay is regarded as “the finest beach of all Asia”. Likewise, popularly known as, “the number one tropical beach in the world”. Everyone will surely enjoy swimming and sunbathing on its 4 kilometer “white sand beach”. You will definitely like this island paradise. This place is also ideal for scuba diving and snorkeling. You can enjoy banana boat riding among many other things.

Hope you have lots of fun touring these truly beautiful and spectacular beaches from around the world.
